We appreciate your interest in Allen Public Schools, where we value all students and will do our best to provide them the best quality education we can.

Allen Public Schools makes decisions about student transfers in accordance with district policy and state law. You can download our comprehensive district policy below; however, we are providing the following information for your convenience:
The state Department of Education requires that the following form be completed to apply for a transfer: [link]. Parents who need access to technology to print or complete the form can visit the elementary or high school office. Paper copies of the form can also be picked up at each site.
The district will begin accepting transfer application for the 2022-2023 school year on February 1, 2022. A decision about transfer requests will be sent to applicants by US mail or email within 30 days of the district receiving their application.
A decision about mid-year transfer requests will be sent to applicants by US mail or email within 30 days of the district receiving their application.
When a transfer is accepted by a district and parents are notified of the decision, they have 10 days to accept the transfer in writing.
New transfers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Students who attended the district on a transfer during the 2021-22 school year will be automatically accepted pending approval from the district. The law also gives preference to children of active-duty military personnel.
To accept a transfer, enrollment in the grade the parent requests must be under the district-established capacity. The district’s capacity and vacancy numbers for each grade and school can be found below.
Transfers may be denied based on capacity, attendance and discipline issues.
Transfers for siblings must be considered separately.
If the grade a student requests is over capacity, he/she will be offered the opportunity to be placed on a waiting list.
Transfer students must abide by eligibility requirements established by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association (OSSAA) for OSSAA-sanctioned activities.
Transfer decisions may be appealed by following the appeal process in the Allen Board of Education Policy FE.
